With so many options online, finding a good mattress is a difficult endeavor. However, this is especially true for seniors over the age of 50. This population experiences more chronic pain than most, particularly in the areas that are most injured during restless sleep such as neck, back, hips, and knees. Luckily, most mattresses these days can be ordered and shipped directly to any door in the US, which is convenient for elderly seniors!
Here are our picks for the 5 best mattresses for elderly people to consider:
Purple has taken the internet by storm with their innovative gel structure, which is very different from traditional memory foam boxed mattresses. This mattress is great for several reasons: the gel base allows for better spinal alignment and offers better back support than a traditional memory foam mattress. It will wear down less over time and will sleep cooler. Purple’s design also creates motion isolation so other movements on the bed like pets or spouses won’t wake anyone up. This mattress, although great, is definitely on the higher end of cost.
